“Emeritus president of the Supreme Court Milan Karabín was the prototype of a decent and honest judge who was supporting the idea of justice for everyone under any circumstances,” said Judge Juraj Kliment, who chaired the panel in which Karabín sat, as quoted by the Denník N daily. The third member of the panel was Peter Szabo.

Karabín chaired the Supreme Court from 1996-97 and 2003-08. He planned to retire at the end of this year, Denník N wrote.

The Tvnoviny.sk website informed that he suffered a heart attack while swimming and drowned.
